“Autonomous cars” and “electrification” have joined “mobility” as the auto industry’s most darling buzzwords, but what made the biggest splash at the biggest new car show in North America? This year, it was leaf-sprung trucks and a V8 manual pony car. After spending a week in Detroit looking at every automaker’s latest wares, my biggest takeaway was that the car world is more polarized than ever.
The American southwest is heaven on Earth for off-road enthusiasts. There are big tracts of different terrain types you can legally run 4x4s and motorbikes across, which is awesome. To help keep things that way, people running the Mint 400 are being proactive about preserving these kinds of places. The 2018 Mint 400 Desert Clean-Up Presented By Republic Services is basically just an organized gathering of folks willing to donate their time to take care of the land they play on.
The 2019 Ram 1500 has a new mild hybrid system, a glorious optional 12-inch touchscreen display, and storage cubbies all over the interior. But that interior is also hiding some neat design easter eggs that call back to classic truck stuff. Ram parent company Fiat Chrysler is really into putting semi-secret styling elements into its vehicles. The Jeep Renegade is positively bristling with aesthetic callbacks to company heritage, and even the new Wrangler has a handful of subtle ones.
@willevanparker@the_falln_angel@Jalopnik Yeah I... want to like it. I'm constantly told I should like it. But I still prefer a well executed car-native UX than a mirror of a smaller percentage of my iPhone in my car's main screen.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
